Description: 360° videos are videos where all directions of the space are filmed simultaneously. This technology allows a viewer to pivot around the location where the camera is present. For librarians, this technology allows them to create more immersive video experiences for users without the requirement of a virtual reality headset. In this presentation, the presenter will share about her use of 360° videos and give the audience tips and tricks for how to use this technology themselves. Throughout the presentation, the speaker will show different examples of 360° videos to give the attendees ideas for how they may wish to use the technology.

Learning outcomes:
– Attendees will become familiar with 360 camera features.
– Attendees will identify ways they can use 360 cameras.
– Attendees will describe ways 360 cameras can enhance the library user experience.
